SFPP 77: How Brandon Stiles Went From Earning $5,000 Per Year To $100,000 In 13 Months

In this episode, Brandon and I talk about education, our experiences in college and the amount that is out there for anyone to just go take.

Brandon discusses what he learned in his failures to motivate him to read 100 books in 13 months and hundreds of hours of mentors which lead to his digital marketing business that produced his first $100,000 of revenue. Brandon shares some of his favorite books and why they were so important to him in building his business.
